Chilli Bites

chilli_boxYes, this is another out-of-the-box test. While I was walking around at the Good Food & Wine Show, Osman’s Spices had some chilli bites already prepared – it was left for us to try. I was craving something savoury, so I tried one. It was really good. I wanted to buy a box right there but they weren’t selling them (not a smart move).

While I was at the Indian spice shop, same place I picked up the tandoori spice, I saw these chilli bites.

It was not what I was after – they didnt have the Osman’s brand, so I went ahead and bought these. I thought its a good week for trial…. and maybe error 😉

I added a chopped onion, grated potato, a green chilli, and water. I ended up adding too much water, so I added some plain white flour into it, to get the right consistency.

I fried them – they took 2 minutes per batch. Not bad.

The verdict: I enjoyed them – savouries always go down well with me.
He said: Too oily (he does not eat samoosa’s for the same reason) – they are fried in deep oil
Perfect for: unexpected guests coming over; afternoon weekend snack or when you have an Indian or savoury craving.

  1. The Taj Mahal (osman’s) version is better i think..

    Are u from Jhb or Durbs orig.. That would hamper ur brand loyalty

  2. I crave these in Ramadaan… don’t use an out the box version though. Will share the recipe that was shared with me, some day…

  3. Try smaller potato slices in the mixture. Draws less oil. And bonus no grating. Besides grated potato is not the same as slices.
